The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Persimmon & the housebuilding sector
Russ Mould of A J Bell looks at the results of Persimmon, the latest company offering a paper yield higher than 10% that turned out to be illusory. That the share price didn't fall further on terrible results shows that the market was ahead of the game. Russ looks at the sector as a whole. Some builders are trading at a discount to book value and sentiment will turn at some stage. But housebuilders are likely to be volatile and potential investors will have to be very brave.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Barclays, Standard Chartered & the banking sector
Russ Mould of A J Bell takes a look at the banking sector. He points out that there are many similarities in the results from Barclays and Standard Chartered, with both showing the highest profits and dividends for some time. However, the market has reacted very differently, with Barclays punished and Standard boosted. He also discusses why banks might be being criticised by MPs and others for still squeezing savers.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: My Portfolio with Lord Lee — The long view (REPLAY)
Simon Rose takes a well-earned break this week, so we bring you his interview with Lord Lee, author of 'How to Make a Million Slowly', as recorded nearly six years ago. At that time, 1 February 2017, it had been an intriguing start to the year for investors with sterling hitting new lows, driving the stockmarket to a record high. Lord Lee cautioned that forecasting the future direction of markets is a tricky business but for investors who maintain a long term view, the importance of growing dividends and hard assets continues to stand out.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Did retailers have a happy Christmas?
Richard Hunter of Interactive Investor discusses how the festive season went for retailers with Simon Rose. Despite the gloomy picture of consumers reigning in spending, the picture emerging from the high street over the most important period of the year is much more positive, with the likes of Next, Sainsbury's, Marks and particularly JD Sports, doing well. What happens in the next few weeks on the interest rate and inflation front, however, will prove very important for the sector.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: 5 Key Trends for 2023
Russ Mould of A J Bell tells Simon Rose of the 5 key trends he thinks investors should keep an eye on in 2023. The inverted yield curve in the US could indicate a recession. 2-year government bonds often lead monetary policy; will central banks stay tough? Commodity prices could have further to go if inflation is not conquered. And the semiconductor and transport sectors both serve as excellent leading indicators of economic activity.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The key themes shaping returns in 2022
Russ Mould of A J Bell takes Simon Rose through the key themes affecting investors in 2022. Oil, gas and inflation is the first though some forget the oil price has been flat. Interest rates finally moved higher. With the fed so hawkish, the dollar was incredibly strong, at least until the end of the year. It was a year in which cryptocurrencies crumbled and in which the seemingly unstoppable tech sector went into reverse gear.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Market reaction to decisions by Fed, BoE and ECB
Victoria Scholar of Interactive Investor, despite being in a broken-down car in freezing weather, talked to Simon Rose about the latest interest-rate decisions from the Fed, the Bank of England and the ECB. With growth weakening, all three tilted away from a more hawkish position. In the UK, the pound and banks were lower ahead of the MPC's announcement while housebuilders were stronger because interest rate rises might not be as great as they might have been.
